Live Talk - Virtual Meeting 3to1 - Needs and Solutions Meet

December 16th in collaboration with Key Project:

Buy (and sell) remote technology innovation projects.
The Idealtec and TBS Europe cases

2020 has put a strain on business relationships, especially those that arise in the preliminary stages of a technological innovation project, which have always required time and resources for cognitive and preparatory physical meetings.

Developing projects based on technology solutions that significantly impact on business processes (such as an ERP, CRM or other business applications), without ever being able to meet with technology partners, sounds like the teaser for a science fiction product.

Yet that’s exactly what Idealtec and TBS Europe have been able to do, two companies that differ in nature and type of business but with a similar need: pursue a path of innovation through the implementation of anagement applications to make their business processes more efficient, effective, agile and “global business proof”…
even when a global health crisis gets in the way!

During the Live Talk “Virtual Meeting 3 TO 1 – Needs and Solutions Meet”,
Vincenzo Greco Manuli, Founding Partner and General Manager of Idealtec and Giovanni Bedendi, President of TBS Europe, will tell their direct experiences to make other entrepreneurs like them understand that….
“it can be done!”
